He would suit this system a lot better than Duffy IMO
I don't agree with THAT, in the workplace!

Needs to start playing regularly but will obviously come into contention.

LOL James McCarthy became Roy Keane over the past few years. If Clark can miss another couple of years he will be Paul McGrath.

I never had confidence in him, he always seemed to be about to make a massive mistake. 
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Absolutely. Harry Arter was Matt Holland!

Clark reminds me of Wilson. At his best, he's a PL standard defender but always looks capable of doing something daft.

Plus one. Very harsh on Clark.

I will certainly try, it is very much de rigeur here.

I’ve always thought he’s a very good defender. Definitely as good an option as John Egan or Shane Duffy. He was really good for Newcastle last season when he was fit

Well, with statements like that one above, it’s fair to say ‘you’d know’!

Well obviously written with tongue-in-cheek, it isn't unfair to say that the longer a player goes without playing the better he becomes. That's as true of retired players as ones still available. 

There's no way Clark was ever better than Egan is currently and the views you expressed are, I believe, because the memory is better than the reality. Likewise,  I think McCarthy is going ro be a key player for the next couple years if he can remain fit, largely due to the current dearth of options, but some of those extolling his virtues on here can't have remembered seeing him play because his weaknesses were rarely discussed.
